    We have a shipment arriving from Klim today or tomorrow. D30 armor to fill up the racks and three of the new HiViz Badlands Pro Jackets! I think there's a L, XL, and 2XL in the box. Not sure where they will hang as our racks are already stuffed with jackets and pants. There's more suspenders & head gear in the shipment too.

    Still waiting on the Overland line and the HiViz Latitudes.

    We will be closed Easter Sunday. Time to consume Honey Baked Ham with extended family.

    Shop's open, Thursday thru Sunday (except Easter) now.

    Second week of April, will be open 6 days, Tuesday will be our closed day.

    May starts our 7 days a week season.

    Weather is looking decent next week, time to head up that way before things get busy. I love the Cherohala when its empty, dry and cold.

    If I stay till Thursday I'll drop in, always "need" something else or some gremlin bells.... :fpalm

    I hear there's a new model that levitates a motorcycle over Black Ice. If you have a virgin install it on your bike during a full moon, it will also part rain clouds on your travel path.

    It's up for sale. "Nothin Fancy" diner is closed too. The KranBonz BBQ is going gang busters though. Awesome food. So is Katz Deli, Tellico Grains, and the new Mexican place in town.

    Madisonville has two liquor stores now; so, wine & hard stuff is only 15 minutes away.

    I just wanted to give a public thank you to Mike. I rode over to his store In March and while trying on jackets, left my lanyard hanging camera behind. He tracked me down and was nice enough to ship it back to me here in Mississippi and wouldn't accept any money to cover shipping. Thank you Mike, I'll be back!

    I get asked all the time if I ride. This past weekend I got three days in a row to ride with some buddies. Here's a few pics:

    Can't say enough "good thangs" about Mike and Da Shop.........!!!! Mike donated a ton of Gift Certificates last month for the 2013 VStrom Rally being held at the Iron Horse Lodge in Stecoah (near Robbinsville). He wasn't "asked" to donate.........he heard about the rally, and volunteered to donate!!! Thankyou Mike........we had a GREAT Rally and TellicoMoto was part of it !!!!!!!!! :clap

    My son and I bought all our Klim gear, a wolfman bag, and Sokz for our trip to Alaska from Tellico Mike. Great gear and great prices. Thanks Mike!

    Here we are holding $22,000 of Yukon Gold in Dawson City as I thought about running out and jumping on my bike.

    Great shot! It wasn't too bad when we got to the sign; but, the weather went to shit later in the day.

    Looks like you could fit it into the "ICE" pocket! Hard to believe that little chunk of metal is worth the price of a really nice bike.
